West Ham have completed the signing of right-back Ryan Fredericks on a free transfer from newly promoted Fulham.
Fredericks starred as Fulham won the Championship play-offs at the end of the 2017-18 season, but the club failed to agree a new deal with the defender, allowing him to move across London and become Manuel Pellegrini’s first signing as Hammers boss.
The 25-year-old has signed a four-year contract with the Premier League side and will officially join his new employers on July 1.
He told West Ham’s official website: “It’s amazing for this deal to finally happen.
“I know we’ve been speaking about it for a while and trying to get things in place and finally, we’ve got it over the line. I’m just buzzing to be here.

“West Ham United are one of the biggest clubs in the Premier League. Everyone knows the history of West Ham and there are a lot of factors that brought me to the club.
“Obviously, it’s an exciting time for West Ham. The club have just brought in a new manager in Manuel Pellegrini and everyone knows his CV and what he has done in England before and in other leagues as well.
“I’m sure I can learn a lot from him.”
